A two-phase strategy was used to develop and implement this plan. Phase 1 surveyed other college/schools of pharmacy regarding methods used to evaluate student abilities and competencies. The results of this survey are described. Phase 2 utilized this, and other information to formulate the educational assessment plan. Implementation of this plan, together with the methods used to identify and correct omissions of programmatic abilities and competencies are described.
